Notes

N396History of the Elmore Family with Biographical Notes, "My father was an Allopathic physician. In his early practice he kept pest-houses for small-pox; and when Dr. Jenner found that the cow-pox prevented taking the small-pox, father went to Boston and learned of Dr. Waterhouse (who had received instructions from Dr. Jenner), and was one of the first to vaccinate in the United States. * * * Father died about fifty years ago; his name was Eliakim. (Jonathan Jenner Elmore, under date April 16, 1880) History of the Elmore Family with Biographical Notes, "My father's name was Eliakim. Our family had gone West to Genesee County before he died.
